cake practice

I'm not much of a baker.  Most cakes I have made have turned out just about ok.  However, my good friend A is an excellent cake maker and recommended this easy birthday cake from Nigella's 'Domestic Goddess' book (which co-incidentally I have, but had never noticed the recipe before).

As Ruby turns 3 next weekend, my plan is to make a simple birthday cake for her, covered in all things pink - including the buttercream.  So a practice run was essential, without so much pink!

Well... it turned out just perfectly in my practice run.   Filled with buttercream and a light spread of blackcurrant jam, this cake tastes delicious.  I highly recommend it for those not so experienced in the cake making department.

Watch out for the pink birthday version coming soon!


  1. Mmmm cake! Looks gorgeous!

  2. Looks gorgeous. Can't wait to see the pink version x

  3. Now you've made me crave cake. So much for my wish to stay off sweets until the holidays.


Thanks for stopping by.
